Scottish Water: Perth Road, Dundee


27th April 2016



We are taking care of the water services in your community. We are upgrading the water pipes to ensure you continue to enjoy clear, fresh drinking water, and reduce the chance of pipes bursting.

The work will involve the lining and flushing of existing water mains in and around the Perth Road area of Dundee.  We would like to tell you about our plans and how this will affect you.

As part of a £5million investment in the upgrading of Dundee’s vital drinking water infrastructure, which will enable customers to enjoy high-quality drinking water well into the future, Scottish Water will be starting work on lining and flushing existing water mains in and around the Perth Road area of Dundee.

Initial work is expected to be carried out in the area from late May, with main work on Perth Road itself from early July. There will be traffic management in place during this time.


A drop-in information event is being held on Thursday 28th April to help the project team understand the communities’ needs and provide local people and businesses an opportunity to find out more about how the work will impact them.
